    It will cost you as much to haul one hive 1000 miles as 400 hives.

    236 hives could easily weigh if doubles or 1 1/2 story 20,000 to 30,000 or more. Add this to the trailer weight and you are TOO HEAVY! Total gross on trailer would be way over 16k. total truck/trailer would be from 32k to 40k. If singles, the weight would probably be from 12k to 18k. still overweight on a 16k trailer. I have a 24 k gooseneck with aluninum deck and a 3500 dodge. with 144 hives (1 1/2 story)and a swinger I would gross out over 30k. 96 hives and swinger 26k. with no swinger I could haul about 144 hives. Bees are heavy....gotta ad truck(8k) trailer and bees. THats why I bought a freightliner!
